3 Mouth-Watering Recipes That Won't Break the Bank

3 Mouth-Watering Recipes That Won't Break the Bank
We always tell you not to eat junk food on the road, which means you’re probably wondering… what  do I eat then? My old paper logs?

If you can run appliances in your cab, then you have the perfect solution to avoid those fast food meals. Simply get yourself a slow cooker (like a Crock Pot)!

We know you are tight on time, so we’ve brought together 3 simple recipes you can set and forget in the back of the cab.

Fiesta Chicken

We found this one over at the Healthy Trucker, so you know it’s tasty, healthy, and geared towards the rig life.

You just need to get your hands on some boneless chicken breast, a can of Campbell’s cheddar soup, and a jar of salsa!

Simply toss all three ingredients into the slow cooker and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours, or high for 4 hours. It’s best to stir the food after a couple of hours.

Once you stop for the night, you can just pop the top off the slow cooker and enjoy!

  • 2.5 lbs of boneless chicken breast
  • 1 can of Campbell’s Condensed cheddar soup
  • 16 oz jar of salsa

Cook time: 4 - 8 hours

Peach Salsa Chicken

The Frugal Girls have the right idea, crafting a delicious recipe based on simplicity and affordability.

Much like the last recipe, this one is simple too. For this one, you need 4 boneless chicken breasts, a jar of peach preserves, and a jar of chunky salsa.

For this recipe, there’s a few extra steps. Cook the chicken with a bit of water on high for 3 hours or low for 6 hours. After that, drain the juices from the chicken. Mix the preserves and the salsa and pour over the chicken.

Cook on high for 30 more minutes and then it’s dinner time!

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 jar peach preserves, 18 oz.
  • 1 jar medium chunky salsa, 16 oz.
  • water

Cook time: 3.5 - 6.5 hours

Barbecue Sandwiches

We stayed pretty healthy on the first two, but we know sometimes you want something a bit more fun. Let’s try some barbecue sandwiches!

To stay with our theme of 3 ingredients, for this one you just need a pork loin, some barbecue sauce, and dinner rolls.

Place your pork in the slow cooker with enough water to cover the bottom of the pot, and cook on low for 7 hours. Afterward, shred the pork with two forks and drain some excess juices.

After that, pour in your favorite barbecue sauce and cook on low for 45 minutes to an hour.

Once it’s ready, you can just spoon it onto your bread of choice

  • 1 boneless pork loin roast
  • 1 bottle of barbecue sauce (18 oz)
  • 8 large dinner rolls (or bread of your choice)
  • water

Cook time: 7.5 - 8 hours
